Pootler's design team September, week 1

Jillian Selwood Purple Jelly Designs Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

I'm so excited to announce that I have been chosen to take part in the Pootler's Design Team for the month of September. My upline, Sam Hammond, sent the September team a stamp set which we have to use to create a project each week.

The stamp set we received is called My Hero and here it is. Not one I would have chosen myself but there are lots of fabulous sentiment and images and I cannot wait to get creating.

The first thing that jumped out at me was the shield with the sentiment 'you are my #1 Hero' and I immediately thought of a card a boy would buy for his Father.

You're my #1 Hero night of navy Guy greetings

I do find masculine cards very difficult to make normally but this brilliant sentiment made it so easy. I used a card base of Thick Whisper White and a mat of Night of Navy which is stamped with the shield stamp in Night of Navy ink. I used a piece of Floral Boutique DSP for the centre of the card. Using Night of Navy ink I stamped the image onto Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it out. There is a shield punch but I don't have it, yet. When I placed the shield on top of the DSP it didn't quite look right so I adhered it to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and fussy cut that out leaving a small border. I then attached it to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

You're my #1 Hero, night of navy Floral Boutique DSP

Using two stamps from the Guy Greetings stamp set I used versamark ink to stamp 'Dad' and 'Happy Birthday' and heat embossed with White embossing powder. 

Guy Greetings Happy birthday You're my #1 hero Night of navy

To complete the card I stamped the shield again on the inside.

I'm really pleased with the end result and hope you like it too.

Thank you for stopping by this week and reading my blog, I do hope you’ve enjoyed it. Until next week.
